Imagine being able to look across the glorious London skyline, cocktail in hand, whilst rolling a boule or striking with your croquet mallet … well that dream can become a reality at Skylight.
With two sites in London Skylight venues invite you to join them for a sharing bucket and a game on their roof top in Tower Hamlets or cocktails and live music on their terrace in Peckham.
Skylight Tobacco Dock
Skyline Tobacco Dock, Tower Hamlets is a versatile hangout offering you a unique night out, whatever the weather. During the winter months Skyline Tobacco Dock lay out the sheep skin rugs and transform their roof into an ice rink.
This summer, however, Skyline Tobacco Dock have laid out all the English country garden classics. While away the hours on a lazy afternoon playing a round of croquet, launching your boules in a game of Petanque, slide into a game of shuffleboard or work up a sweat with a game of ping pong.
Street food is on the menu at Skyline Tobacco Dock. Choose from State Side’s American themed menu or Hikari’s sushi options. It is no surprise that a venue with this kind of laid-back ambience offers a great bar which includes sharing options. Grab your party a Cyder Tasting Bucket, a Craft Beer Bucket or (most suitable for your lawn games) a large helping of Pimms.
Skylight Peckham – launching 19th August
Skylight Peckham is rather different to its sister site. Skylight Peckham boasts a stunning interior lounge for those seeking refuge from the sun and a sumptuous roof top terrace when the city skyline is softened by tropical planting. This venue is all about exquisite food and live music.
Across the weekend Skylight Peckham serve brunch until 5pm which includes delights such as: Roast beef on sourdough toast; Charred asparagus, confit Chalkstream trout, poached egg & pink peppercorn hollandaise. After 5 you can indulge in small or large plates which include Gochujang glazed seabream or Grilled Poussin.
To accompany your evening their full bar offers beer, cider, spritzers, wine, soft drinks and, of course, cocktails. Select from their range of signature cocktails including Rooftop Rhubarb and the Lawn Club Sour, or classic cocktails, for example Bramble, East London Iced Tea and Bellini.
So, whatever the occasion Skylight have got the something extraordinary for you.
